Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed once for no gain and he had three grabs for 27 yards on five targets in the NFC Wild Card Game playoff loss against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Fantasy Spin: Cohen ended the regular season with 444 rushing yards while adding 71 grabs, 725 yards and five touchdowns through the air, and he was also a force in the return game at times. He has also not missed a game over his first two NFL seasons. Cohen will be a popular choice in PPR fantasy leagues in 2019 for his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield and grab huge chunks of yardage after doing so.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen has been quiet over the last month but will be an X-factor against an Eagles defense that allowed the 12th fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. But the Eagles run defense can be burned and has allowed 11 total touchdowns (seven rushing, four passing) to running backs over their last seven games. Cohen has posted only 105 total yards from scrimmage over his last three games but the speedster can bust loose at any moment. The Bears will do all they can to get Cohen involved and open in space this coming Sunday.
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed five times for 24 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for eight yards in a 24-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 17.
Fantasy Spin: Although a touchdown never hurts, fantasy owners have to be concerned about his lack of touches recently. With Jordan Howard rolling, Cohen will be tough to trust in playoff contests.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen totaled 32 all-purpose yards and scored a touchdown in the Bears 24-10 win over the Vikings. The second-year dynamo has scored in a variety of ways this season, three by rushing, five receiving and one passing. Cohen finishes the season with a team-high 71 receptions and 1,169 yards from scrimmage. Cohen has been a streaky fantasy player all season but emerged as a dangerous FLEX option in 2019. There is little doubt he will be on the minds of the Eagles defensive coordinators heading into the Bears playoff matchup next Sunday.
Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky, RBs Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen and WR Allen Robinson are among the players head coach Matt Nagy plans to be 'smart' with versus the Minnesota Vikings in Week 17, suggesting he could pull his team's starters if the Los Angeles Rams appear as if they will secure the NFC's second first-round bye.
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed six times for 12 yards and caught one pass for seven yards in a 14-9 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16.
Fantasy Spin: Cohen has been sputtering down the stretch, and he didn't seem to be part of the game plan against San Francisco. If your fantasy league is still playing in Week 17, you should probably avoid Cohen.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen was held to only 19 all-purpose yards in the Bears 14-9 win over the 49ers. Cohen was barely featured early on and it appeared that the speedster was being deployed as a decoy at times to run reverse plays. Cohen has been a dynamic force this season but has been vulnerable to poor fantasy performances. He will be difficult to trust in Week 17 against a tough Vikings defense that is allowing the 11th fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs and are playing for their playoff lives.
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen posted five runs for 21 yards and he added a five receptions for 31 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers.
Fantasy Spin: Cohen had 10 total touches to 20 for Jordan Howard, but the scatback Cohen was able to find the end zone for his fantasy owners. He remains a solid RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 16 on the road against the 49ers.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen caught five passes for 31 yards, including a fantastic 12-yard catch-and-dive for a touchdown, in the Bears win over the Packers in Week 15. Cohen added 21 rushing yards as the Bears clinched the playoffs with the victory. Cohen displayed an excellent change of direction in the second quarter, catching a pass from quarterback Mitch Trubisky, sprinting to the sidelines and leaping over the pylon for the score. Cohen also added an excellent punt return to put the Bears in the red zone for another score. The second-year speedster now has eight total touchdowns this season (one passing, two rushing, five receiving) and will be a boom-or-bust fantasy option next week against a 49ers defense that has been solid stopping the run.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen is having a fantastic season, racking up 63 receptions, averaging 4.6 yards per carry, 1,063 all-purpose yards and seven total touchdowns this season. But the second-year running back has been dismal in three career games against the division-rival Packers, with only 99 total yards and zero touchdowns. Green Bay's defense is allowing the 12th fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs this season but have allowed six different running backs to post 100-plus yards from scrimmage against them this season. Cohen has been an X-factor for the Bears offense this season and they will undoubtedly try to get the speedster going in this game. Cohen will be a high-risk, high-reward FLEX option for Week 15.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen carried the ball nine times for 69 yards in the Bears 15-6 win over the Rams. The second-year speedster also caught four passes for 20 yards and now has 1,063 yards from scrimmage this season. Cohen is a game-breaker that can be lined up anywhere on the field and the Bears, this week, utilized him mostly in the backfield. Cohen ran hard for some big first downs and averaged 4.6 yards per carry. Cohen has emerged as a fantasy asset this season, totaling seven touchdowns (one passing, two rushing, four receiving) and has a new career-high in receptions with 63. Cohen will be out for revenge in Week 15 against a Packers team that held him to only 41 total yards in the first game of the season.
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen ran for 69 yards on nine carries and hauled in all four of his targets for 20 yards in Week 14 versus the Los Angeles Rams.
Fantasy Spin: Cohen was the best offensive player on either side in this contest and seemingly the only player unaffected by the cold in Chicago. He did pretty much all of his damage in the first half, including an explosive 32-yard off-tackle run that set up the Bears' first field goal. Cohen took a back seat in the second half as Jordan Howard chewed up the clock. Cohen remains the superior play in fantasy moving forward and should be a solid RB2 again in Week 15 versus the Green Bay Packers.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen will try and stay hot against the Rams in chilly Chicago weather for Week 14. Cohen dominated last week with backup quarterback Chase Daniel under center, posting 189 total yards against the Giants. The speedster will go up against a Rams defense that is allowing the 12th fewest fantasy points to opposing backs this season but have allowed eight total touchdowns to the position since Week 8. The Rams have been fantastic at limiting running backs in the passing game this season but Cohen continues to find ways to catch passes in space for huge plays. Cohen is the preferred fantasy option over teammate Jordan Howard for Week 14 and should see plenty of targets in the game. Cohen will have FLEX appeal in most fantasy formats and has 974 all-purpose yards this season with seven total touchdowns (one passing, two rushing, four receiving).
Bears' RB Tarik Cohen scored an astounding 34.65 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 13 loss in New York Giants. Cohen ran for 30 yards and caught 12 passes for 156 yards with one touchdown.
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed eight times for 30 yards and caught 12 passes for 156 yards in a 30-27 loss to the New York Giants in Week 13. He also threw a one-yard touchdown pass.
Fantasy Spin: Cohen did it all in this one, and his ability to make an impact in the passing game gives him RB2 upside in PPR formats on a weekly basis.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen registered 30 yards on the ground and 12 receptions for 156 yards while throwing a touchdown pass in the Bears wild loss to the Giants 30-27 in overtime. Cohen was deadly all over the field in a variety ways with the ball in his hands. He even connected on a double reverse that resulted in Cohen passing to receiver Anthony Miller for a game-tying touchdown. This, by far, has been one of the best fantasy efforts of the season for the speedster. Cohen will have intriguing FLEX value next week against the Rams and the impending return of quarterback Mitch Trubisky.
Chicago's RB Tarik Cohen had 12 receptions for 156 yards but no touchdowns in Sunday's loss in New York Giants.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen carries plenty of upside heading into the team's Week 13 matchup against the Giants. Cohen has 788 yards from scrimmage this season with 47 receptions and six touchdowns for the surprising Bears. This week he will go up against a Giants defense that has allowed a running back to post a touchdown in every game they have played this season. The Giants have allowed 12 different running backs to post 10-plus fantasy points against them and eight of those players posted more than 15 points. The Bears will turn to backup quarterback Chase Daniel for the second straight game and the offense will need to get the ball into Cohen's game-breaking hands. Cohen is a better fantasy play than teammate Jordan Howard in Week 13 and the Bears should be able to design ways to get the speedster the ball in space. Cohen is a RB2/3 with tons of upside in Week 13.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen seven passes for 45 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown catch, in the Bears 23-16 win over the Lions. With injured quarterback Mitch Trubisky sidelined, the team turned to backup Chase Daniel to make plays. The Bears completely abandoned the running game to move the chains and Cohen added only 14 rushing yards in the game. Daniel and Cohen failed to connect on a fade route for a touchdown earlier in the game but scored on an almost identical route in the second half to briefly put the Bears up in the game. The fantasy value of the Bears offensive weapons will be tied to Trubisky moving forward.
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen caught seven passes for 45 yards and one touchdown against the Detroit Lions in Week 12. He also rushed for 14 yards on three carries during the game.
Fantasy Spin: Cohen has received at least 10 touches in each of the last three games but is not putting up the type of numbers he was earlier in the season. He will have a good matchup next week and can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
